Signs Of Trouble With Your Garage Door Opener
There are a few things to look out for that will help you keep up the life of your garage door opener and garage door. If you notice rattling sounds, it could mean hardware associated with your opener is damaged or loose. If your garage door starts to close but then starts to open you may have an issue related to the garage door opener.
Troubleshooting At Home
Before you call there are a few things you can do yourself to rule out user error or simple homeowner fixes. We appreciate your business, but educating the customer is also very important to us. This will also help save you money in the long run.
Wall Mounted Lock Feature
Some garage door openers have a wall mounted lock feature. You will want to make sure that it is turned off. Look for a blinking light or the words “lock activated”, if it is on turn it off. You can turn it off by pressing the menu button or pressing down the lock button for two seconds.
Try replacing your battery. Garage door batteries typically last up to three years and it is not something you typically think about replacing. See your owner’s manual for your model’s specifications or look on the battery inside your remote for the battery type and size.
Reprogram The Remote
In order to reprogram the remote, you will need to hit the reset button in the roof of your garage. I recommend accessing your garage door manual for step by step instructions on how to complete this process. If you do not have your manual, feel free to call us and we can walk you through step by step.
